Gayle, that was strange, poor boy frown

Thank you all once again. I will start a detailed diary as of the morning. I steeped 3 chamomile tea bags overnight so it was strong and this morning straight after her breakfast I gave her probably 1/3 cup with a bit of honey. I don't know if it is because I want to believe, but she seemed more settled in general.

I should clarify that her frothing at the mouth is only when she is nutting off at something ( birds, rubbish truck or someone walking past).

I think I am going to stick to my plan (but note everything) before I really go down the neurological route. I just can't deal with a whole lot more at the moment and the thought of my Molly having something seriously wrong is more than I can bare. Denial - yes I am good at it.

I am so glad someone suggested the diary or journal and I am sure it will help show patterns. I keep hoping the answer is there and will surface soon and will be an easy fix.

I am going to throw this out there even if it may be far fetched - could she be trying to alert to something medical going on with either you or your husband? Or even perceiving dangers that really aren't there?

I keep thinking of her at the bedroom door, trying to move the wheelchair. I believe you said that when you gave in and let her in, she just laid down quietly on the floor? Almost sounds like being frustrated that she could not be close by to protect him.

Perhaps you should write down where each of you were in relation to Molly as you keep your diary?

Just know you have many friends thinking of you. hugging

Bianca,

I found taking notes really really valuable when Wolf got sick and we were trying to track it down. Days resemble days and sometimes it's hard to be sure when a particular event happened and then what happened the next day. Any trend in Miss Moo's behavior could be important.

She's such a doll,

MJ

Indy frothed when she was young, it really worried me. Omething eventually made it go away. And then it started again when she was older and sicker than I realized at the time. It only happened on exertion. I wish I knew what made it go away when she was young. I don't know if it could have been her heart, I have thought it was more related to the regurgitation problems that later developed.

Certain worms can cause neuro problems - any signs of parasites?

Btw, that supplement that you are waiting for doe work on the brain, and is essentially affecting the nervous system. Wish it would get there!

Thank you Lisa, nope no signs. The ones I give cover everything including hyatids (sp).

Bonnie, it is strange you say that, I have kind of half heartedly thought along those lines too.

But I don't know if it is me or Brad that she worries about. She is always more on edge when he is asleep and yet if I have a nana nap (when Brad is up) she sleeps next to me and not a peep out of her. It would make sense for her to be unsettled about him due to his condition but then if it was that, why would she be fine when he is up and I'm not? I don't know. Maybe she reads him laugh

Oh gosh Bianca, this is still going on? My heart was sad when I saw this thread still active. I have not been around reading the boards lately but remembered reading this when you first posted. Just wanted to send you hugs and prayers for your Moo. I know you must be beside yourself. I hope you find an answer soon and she starts to improve. Hugs.

I am so glad you got your order and I hope they do the job for Miss Molly. Yes - it is a huge bottle. thumbup

Yes - I always hold my breath when I open it. The 'aroma' is a little unpleasant for me. lol

I just toss two a night in Skye's food and she has always gobbled them up. Or you can put one in the morning and one at night if her odd behaviors are throughout the day.

I so hope this makes a difference - and quickly.
